    What are the chances Apple releases a new Thunderbolt display in the near future (maybe WWDC) to match the body of the new iMac?

    None unless it is 4K capable. And currently too many Macs can't do 4K at all or at at decent refresh rates.

    Things change after OSX 10.9.3 update.

    I'm with MCAsan on this. What do you think they could release?

    - 4K at 27" ? Way too small resolution.
    - 4K at 24" ? Much smaller than current Thunderbolt Display.
    - The same old resolution in a new case? They could have done that long ago.

    I believe option 2 and 3 are the more likely ones. But I can't see one obvious solution here :confused:

    How is 4K at 27" to small of a resolution? There is no way that Apple will go with a higher resolution like 8K.

    If they use pixel doubling it essentially will be a very sharp 1080p at 27" which is too small. If they don't everything will be too small. Without using pixel doubling 1440p seems like the resolution sweet spot at 27".
